This is a digital pdf pattern for a durable kitchen cotton string bag perfect for Saturday market or grocery store. When completed the bag stretches to hold pretty much as much as a paper grocery sack. My daughter has used the one I made for her for five years or more and receives compliments on it all the time. These bags make great gifts. Also good to carry beach or pool accessories. Once you make one and see how the pattern works out, it can be made in a few hours. I have bought similar patterns on Etsy and the one I have developed is superior in simplicity, style, and durability and can be made using just one 2 oz ball of kitchen cotton (this varies slightly from bag to bag, and sometimes takes slightly more than one ball, sometimes slightly less).
